I am expecting to adopt a friends Muscovies sometime in the near future. She currently has 10 adults & 2 ducklings. I will need to build a new pen for them to move in to but i know the yard will have to be kinda last minute since we're going to make sure the coop is done right.

What's the minimal yard space for about 10 ducks? they wont be free ranging for a while so i don't want them to be miserable in a teeny yard....

I am not used to confining my ducks to their pen for longer than a couple days and these guys will be in theirs for over a week, maybe 2.... Just want them to be comfortable until we can get the new, nice yard all built.

When ducks are inclosed they need about 10 sq. ft of land per duck. When there outside they need 25 sq. ft of land per duck.
